Our old storm door was at least 2 decades overdue for a replacement. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it's original to the house, which was built in the 60s. Well... I take that back. We have a back door that aluminum. I'll bet that's original to the house. The one on the front was probably replaced in the 80s :-/
Overall, I tend to like the full-view storm doors best, but they're not really practical for our use since we like to use the screen and I can't even imagine chancing a full screen like that with a 45lb dog and a toddler to push on it from the inside. I think this is a nice compromise for us and it definitely freshens up the facade of our house.
Next weekend Mark plans to touch up the door frame, which as you can see has some peeling paint. We also need to pick up a new welcome mat as some stoooopid wildlife has decided to snack on our old one. My money is on the deranged squirrels that also at our patio cushions 2 years ago ::side eye::
We still need to replace the sliding glass door in our kitchen, the inside back door that's in our laundry room, as well as the aforementioned aluminum storm door that's on the outside. Super fun!
